This Head I Hold by Electric Guest

This head that I hold, no, is so tired

I wanna get out but there's no in between
So I sit back as I watch the crowd go
Never assumed that I'd sunken so low
See the answer is this
If I wanna be free
I gotta stop playin' round and runnin' from me

Lyrics:

They call me a litte grown up
See Im upset because I've always been stuck
But I don't know what it is I'm without
Guess I'm in love with always feelin" down
See the problem was I
Was fully consumed
With all of the petty things that I couldn"t do
All of the plastic products, shows and woes
I didn't ever show, I let it go
So I listen while "m told
Sit back, don"t think, get high, take drink
Sit back, don"t think
The more I listen the deeper I sink
Oh I go higher
And I say oh oh oh I go higher
This head that I hold, oh, is so tired
And I say oh no I go higher
And I say oh, what's it gon-, what's it gonna be?
Make me say oh, what's it gon-, what's it gonna be?
I'm feelin' so cold, what they want, what they want from me?
Make me say oh oh oh oh oh
So find me stuck in some scene
I wanna get out but there's no in between
So I sit back as I watch the crowd go
Never assumed that I'd sunken so low
See the answer is this
If I wanna be free
I gotta stop playin' round and runnin' from me
Cause all of the plastic products, shows and woes
Got my head feelin' low, no room to grow
So I listen while I'm told
Sit back, dont think, get high, take drink
Don't feel, just go
If you listen carefully then you won't feel so low
Sit back, don't think
The more I listen the deeper I sink
Oh I go higher
And I say oh oh oh I go higher
This head that I hold, no, is so tired
And I say oh, no, I go higher
And I say oh, what's it gon-, what's it gonna be?
Make me say oh, what's it gon-, what's it gonna be?
Im feeling so cold, what they want, what they want from me?
Make me so oh oh oh oh oh
I say oh I go higher
And I say oh oh oh I go higher
Get no sleep, me the vampire
And I say oh, no I go higher
And I say oh I go higher
And I say oh oh oh I go higher
This head that I hold, no, is so tired
And I say oh no I go higher
